Legislative activities at the National Assembly resumed on Tuesday after last week’s uproar at the complex.
Lawmakers who spoke to HOMELAND NEWS expressed satisfaction with the level of security check-up and screening leading into the premises.
However the members of the House of Representatives did not sit as earlier speculated.
Men of the Nigerian police force were sighted at different strategic locations.

Tuesday’s security check-up was peaceful and easy going unlike what played out on Thursday where lawmakers, including the Speaker of the House of Representatives were denied access and later had tear gas canisters fired at them.
In the Senate chamber, it was a calm atmosphere even as the Representatives hall was under lock and key.

Senators Ita Enang, PDP, Akwa Ibom state and Babafemi Ojudu, APC, Ekiti State told our correspondent that they are satisfied with the conduct of security agencies on ground contrary to the total embarrassing situation the week before. 
Justifying this action the Inspector General of Police Sulieman Abba said the deployment of policemen to the complex was to prevent hoodlums from invading the national assembly.
